Karl Morre is the first school in constructive timber construction in Styria.

In accordance with the objectives of the client for an extremely economical concept, quiet bodies were developed.

The freely arranged windows suggest the fun and playfulness of an elementary school. The hoard for the afternoon care is atmospherically a contrast to the school building and hides under a field unfolded. The lifting of the two-floor class tract by 3 m creates a covered outdoor space, which leads to the adjacent sports field. The gymnasium and the gymnastics room are positioned below as colored accentuated boxes. The development courses change from north to south, according to the spatial functions and thus create varied views. The classrooms receive a particularly cheerful and cozy atmosphere through the freely arranged windows and the choice of materials wood.
